Pictures of an Audi concept car have leaked out ahead of its launch at the Frankfurt motor show.
Reports from the US are claiming the car is called the R8 e-Tron and it will be based on the Audi R8 supercar. This backs up the previous teaser images we have seen of the car, which has shown what appears to be an electric Audi R8.
Changes over the standard R8 include a new front grille and front end, while new LED headlights also feature. New wheels and a new rear end also appear on the concept.
The concept is likely to be pitched as a rival to the BMW Vision EfficientDynamics Concept and the Mercedes SLS AMG eDrive, both of which will appear at Frankfurt.
Interior shots leaked show a driver-biased centre console with two screens; one for the rear view camera and one showing a navigation map.
Audi has fuelled speculation it will launch a new electric car at Frankfurt with the launch of ww.electricityuntamed.com, a new website counting down to the show tomorrow morning. It features the line “What happened to electricity?”.
Full details of the concept are expected to be revealed by Audi tomorrow.
